- Policy Dialogue on Forest Landscape Restoration and Gender Equality
Policy Dialogue on Forest Landscape Restoration and Gender Equality
The current understanding of Forest Landscape Restoration moves beyond the ecosystem-based approach of previous years and defines restoration as “a planned process to regain ecological integrity and enhance human well-being in deforested or degraded landscapes”. Gender equality and women’s rights are critical for addressing these dual objectives.
This workshop will bring together a wide range of stakeholders working on both FLR and the promotion of gender equality and women’s rights to learn about gender responsive forest restoration. The workshop will generate dialogue on the opportunities and challenges of addressing gender equality in FLR, and to identify contextual and empirically grounded approaches to advancing gender-responsive FLR in East African countries.
